Nice images, but one piece of constructive crit...drop the first shot in the second set. It is a well executed shot, but the first thing an editor will see is the car's bumper hitting the boy's head. When presenting your work, you have to be very critical and leave nothing to chance.

Lovely photos.
How did you get the eyes to stand out so beautifully?

The were outside and the light just happened to catch in the eyes. After that I just sharpen and dodge them a little in photoshop, and I also use some actions that help.

I love them, great subjects to add to the portfolio. I agree about the eyes as well, but client s like that, so I think it's okay to keep them that way.
What lenses did you use, these are very nice!


I just used a 50mm 1.8

I agree with everyone about the eyes.

I have a tendency to go overboard once started, as a lot of people do.

Also, I try to compensate when I know that I am going to upload photos to the internet, because I don't have a calibrated monitor and the color profiles from Photoshop get thrown out the window when I upload to the web.

Jaycee,

Do you use a particularly action or PS filter for your photos do have you developed your own process? I found a great action I have been using a lot with tweaks to make it more personal and pop more, but I am curious. I do like your look a lot and it's similar to what I am going for with children's photography. Also, out of curiosity, what body are you using? You gotta love that 50mm.. :)


I am super cool n' stuff.

i like the pictures dude, but I like your use of King of Queens even more, haha. favorite dafont typeface of all time :D

was looking at your portfolio- could I talk you out of pink and black? you've got excellent pictures and a very defined style, and the layout really takes away from it. just maybe change everything to white even, you'd be set. a little too fallout boy/teenage for a serious buisness, I think you'd look more professional with something different.

That is definitely not my professional portfolio that I would use to obtain any professional business. The reason why I used what I used, was because it was me, and that is more of a place to show my family/friends my work.

Believe me, I definitely wouldn't put skulls on anything if I was trying to obtain business.

Also, I guess it can be teenage for me, because I still am a teenager...haha.

Thanks for the input, and the font indeed does rock.

Action wise I generally use Kubota and Totally Rad, lately leaning more towards the Totally Rad.

The body that I use is the XTi.

I love the Nifty fifty. I am looking to get a 1.4 soon... yay!

Nice series.
Really like #'s 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10. A few are looking a bit off, a bit soft and oversaturated almost. But most of them I like a lot!
